Q: Under the new terms and conditions, what will happen to the company’s points balance in an existing Loyalty Program account?

A: Any points already accumulated or claimed in a company’s active Loyalty Program account will remain. However, accounts which have been inactive for 18 months or more as of April 1, 2019 will be terminated and any points in those accounts will be forfeited.

 

Q: The company representative who set up the Loyalty Program account is no longer with the company. How does the company access the points in its account?

A: Because the VWR Loyalty Program is a business-to-business plan only offered by VWR to its corporate customers, the account is associated with the company and not any individual. Our records of authorized representatives who can act on behalf of the company should always be current. If a company representative’s role or status should change, another company representative assuming their duties should contact the VWR Loyalty Program Team to update the account information. Please visit https://www.vwrloyaltyca.com/contactus to do so.

 

Q: When is a company’s Loyalty Program account considered inactive?

A: The changes to the program’s terms and conditions are effective April 1, 2019. For an account to be considered active, there must be both point accumulation and reward redemption during the 18-month period leading up to that date. This activity can be reviewed through the Loyalty account on https://www.vwrloyaltyca.com

 

Q: Will the company be notified if its Loyalty Program account will be terminated?

A: Yes. An email will be sent to the company’s email address associated with the company’s account 30 days prior to the termination of the account. Note: It is the customer’s responsibility to keep its contact information, including email address designated for receiving important notifications, up to date in its company profile. Please visit https://www.vwrloyaltyca.com/contactus to do so.

 

Q: If the company’s Loyalty Program account is terminated after April 1, 2019, what happens to the points balance?

A: Beginning April 1, 2019, if a company’s Loyalty Program account has been inactive for 18 months, it will be terminated and the points balance of that account will be forfeited.  Please keep in mind that to be considered active after April 1, 2019, a company must both accumulate and redeem points during the previous 18 months. 

 

Q: How can the company check its Loyalty Program account points balance?

A: Log on to the VWR Loyalty Website at https://www.vwrloyaltyca.com and choose the “Account” tab from the top menu bar, then choose “Points” from the menu found on the left side of the page.  

 

Q: How can the company check when its Loyalty Program account was last active?

A: Log on to the VWR Loyalty Website at https://www.vwrloyaltyca.com and choose the “Account” tab from the top menu bar, then choose “Points” from the menu found on the left side of the page. The last point accumulation event for the account will be displayed.  Please keep in mind that to be considered active after April 1, 2019, a company must both accumulate and redeem points during the previous 18 months. Both point accrual and redemption can be viewed on the “Points” page.

 

Q: Why doesn’t the company’s Loyalty Program account have the option to redeem points for Gift Cards or Electronics?

A: Some program members are not eligible to redeem rewards other than VWR Collections products.  Please contact the VWR sales representative assigned to the company’s account for more information.
